What is the speed of the electromagnetic waves in vacuum?


New member
The speed of electromagnetic waves in vacuum, often denoted as "c," is approximately 299,792,458 meters per second (or about 300,000 kilometers per second). This speed is often rounded to 3×10^8 meters per second for convenience.
This speed is a fundamental constant of nature and is the same for all types of electromagnetic waves, including visible light, radio waves, microwaves, X-rays, and more. It's a universal speed limit that is the maximum speed at which information or energy can be transmitted through the vacuum of space.
